Well, after waiting for an opportunity to use the Flashpoint AD600 in a working situation, here are some unretouched jpegs from today's shoot. Model Katie is extraordinary, and the AD600 was able to keep up under conditions I considered to be extreme. Namely, HSS with my 5DMKIII set for the faster motor drive (up to 7 frames per second). If you understand what HSS is requiring of a flash, this, to me, is remarkable performance. I'm shooting in low light, cloudy (about to rain) daylight at ISO 400, 1/500 sec, f4.5 for the black outfit and for the red dress, ISO 800, in heavy shadow, f4 1/400 sec. Both obviously requiring high speed sync at those shutter speeds, and it didn't miss a frame. The power settings are 1/128 and 1/128 +.3 through a 36" octobox camera left. For the red dress, a second light was added for separation; a Canon 580EXII fired through a 20 degree MagMod Grid and MagSphere, to shape and soften, at 1/8 power. All strobes controlled and triggered from the camera by wireless remotes; the R2 for the AD600, and a Phottix Odin for the Canon. The main light is from 4-5 feet from Katie. The series is an example of the consistency maintained throughout high frame rate bursts with HSS. The HSS did go a tad magenta, but that's an easy correction.
